The Flamingo Scooter Ballet takes the E-Scooter Craze to a whole new level. Wellington choreographer Holly Newsome and 20 Movers and Shakers from Wellington's charismatic performing arts sector create an outdoor performance procession across Wellington's waterfront in a never seen before scooter spectacle. Pausing momentarily to mesmerise and surprise with moves and moments you will never normally get to see on an E SCOOTER -. Catch this colour group of performers, actors, dancers and circus artists - if you happen to be having your lunch or a stroll along the waterfront lookout for them - they will be hard to miss!

MOTH is a company that brings together artists from all sorts of backgrounds, including dance, theatre, design, video and music. We're interested in connecting with artists and communities, and offering different perspectives on contemporary life. We've staged works as diverse as Hurihrui - an outdoor spectacle for the Commonwealth Games Arts Festival in Australia in 2018, to Meremere an intimate dance theatre work right through to directing and choreographing the World of Wearable Art Awards Show, a huge indoor arena event. What drives us is how movement, combined with music and light can tell us and make us feel so much more than words alone. Creating and being immersed in theatrical and imaginative worlds with movement is a huge adventure. We discover new things. We are inspired by other perspectives through this which we discover new understandings and ideas and possibilities of worlds beyond our own. Being creative with other artists is what drives us and the kaupapa of Movement of the Human. We collaborate. Through the process of collaboration we are able to create something more, something bigger and something more meaningful than could be created by the individual.
